I have seen a few on you tube and one was a older fellow like me playing a grand and a folk. It seems easy to play on the video and I have to really wonder how low the action is set because it can't be what I was told my grands specs are supposed to be 7/64" low E and 5/64 high E told by Godin. Mine is a tad higher now and when I was playing every day I could play easy on this high action and this might be the issue yet on these videos not only do they have the guitars though mics they may have the action set much lower than I was told by Godin.
I prefer 5/64" & 1/16", measured with the string pressed at the 1st fret to take the nut out of the equation. I play softly with my fingers and rarely a pick. High action is better for hard strumming and flatpicking. The higher the action the more you pull the note out of tune when you press the fret. But for some playing styles it is a requirement.
Don't be fooled by how others play. lol. Some guitarists, heck, a lot of them, can make playing a guitar with what one might consider bad action look very easy. All depends on the player, what they're used to and their skills.
